This is the fifth CD in the first complete recording of the 72 cantatas from Georg Philipp Telemann's collection Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst, published in Hamburg in 1726 — the first complete set of cantatas for the liturgical year to be appear in print. The cantatas are designated for voice, an obbligato instrument (recorder, violin, transverse flute or oboe) and basso continuo, and generally take the form of two da capo arias with an intervening recitative. Although intended for worship, both public and private, Telemann's cantatas are a masterly blend of tunefulness with skilled counterpoint and vocal and instrumental virtuosity.

Johan van Veen :
“…Ms Julsrud also shows a thorough understanding of the meaning of the texts and that leads to utterly convincing interpretations. …the rhythms are treated with more freedom, and the main words in the text are effectively emphasized. This results in a truly rhetorical interpretation. …All in all, I am very happy with these discs [Vol. 1 and Vol. 5] which shed light on the many qualities of this compelling collection of cantatas.” MusicWeb International
